About Me

My photo
Welcome to my ScandinAsian food blog. A blog about what I like to make in my little Norweigan kitchen, from homemade meals to fun creative sandwiches. My parents gave me the name Sorieya, a Cambodian name, which means sun. I'm originally from the United States. Now I'm currently living in Norway, married to a Norwegian man with 3 beautiful children. It's hard being away from my family back in the States and I miss them everyday. I am not an artist but I love making fun sandwiches for my kids. I am not a professional chef but I love to cook and I love being in the kitchen. I love introducing my children to different kind of international food, introducing food from my childhood and explaining to my kids the history about their culture and food. I love spending those quality time together teaching my little ones how to make bread, Khmer food, and teaching me Norwegian. My Norwegian isn't that great but I do understand just the basics but speaking it, that's another story.

Fluffy American Pancakes

This morning I wanted to make a special breakfast for my family. I haven't made pancakes for almost 2 years because I did not have any Maine Maple Syrup. During the Christmas holiday my parents flew across the Atlantic to visit. They brought Maine Maple Syrup and other snacks I haven't had for years. Sunday breakfast: homemade pancakes and sunny side eggs with Gouda cheese, salami, and sun dried tomatoes. 

Pancake batter
1 cup milk 3 Tablespoons white vinegar
1 1/2 cup flour 3 Tablespoons white sugar 1 Tablespoon vanilla powder 2 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 2 large eggs (lightly whisked) 2 1/2 Tablespoons butter (soften)
Combine milk and vinegar in a bowl or cup, set a side for 5 mins. Just another similar way to make butter milk.
In a large bowl add all dry ingredients and mix.
Then whisk in milk/vinegar mixture to the dry ingredients. Add in the eggs and butter. Whisk until most lumps are gone. Set a side to rest for 5-10 minutes.
Heat skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter or cooking oil, just to get the skillet grease. When butter melts, ladle 1/4 cup of pancake batter into the hot skillet. Cook until bubbles appears on the top about 2 minutes, then flip with a spatula and cook until brown (not too brown) on the other side.

Serve with maple syrup, cinnamon butter, fresh chopped fruit, whipped cream, chocolate chips, or jams.
